2 weeks old

Landry is two weeks old today! I can't believe it. Seems like just yesterday I was in the hospital. She had her two week check up today....doing well, growing like a weed. She weighed 9 lbs 7 oz and was 21 3/4 in. She is in the 95th percentile. That's my girl....just like big sister Rylee. :)

Happy Father's Day!

I know, I know - it's been awhile since my last blog. Between the feedings, changing diapers, chasing a 4 yr old and family visits, I have not had the time to blog. I promise, I will update soon.

Today, I want to wish all the daddy's out there a Happy Father's Day but I especially want to wish Kasey a very Happy Father's Day! You're the best! We love you!
Until next time....xoxo

She's here.....

Hello friends & family!

Landry Cate has made her arrival. Born @ 2:48 pm on June 10, 2009.
Weighing in at 8lbs, 8oz and 21 in long. She is beautiful like her big sister!!

We are all super excited, especially Rylee. Since the moment she was born, Rylee has been so in love with her. She doesn't want to leave her side for a minute.
It just melts my heart to watch her with Landry!
{ask me in 4-10 yrs how their relationship is - ha!}

Until next time.....xoxo

Induction Day

Today is induction day! I am so excited but also really nervous. I haven't slept much since Monday and here it is 12:50 am and I really need to be in bed {Note: I have to be at the hospital at 6 am.} Every time I feel that I am ready, I think of something else I need to do. Leave it to me to wait until the LAST minute to get things together. I have no idea what Landry will wear home - I did pack 4 outfits.....hopefully by the time we are released from hospital, I will make a decision. ha! Another thing I have been worrying about is my baby girl, Rylee. I keep wondering how she is going to feel about all these changes to her world this week. She is super excited that she will be a big sister and she knows Landry will be here tomorrow but I wonder, "Does she really know whats going on?" I have so enjoyed the last 4 years with my doodlebug.....how will I ever love another baby the same? Those of you with more than one child, how do you do it? Is it instant? Is it a different kind of love? I just don't know how to do it? I know in my heart that I can do this and things will just naturally fall into place. I guess these feelings running through my head are just my nerves working in overdrive. :)

Today begins a new day in the Howell Family. I can't wait to share pictures of our new princess with all of our friends & family! Thanks to all for your support & love and I will keep y'all updated throughout the day today. Keep posted for updates! :)

Until next time......xoxo

Happy Birthday Doodlebug!

Wow! I can't believe my baby girl is 4 today. They grow up so fast, don't they?
I can remember the day she was born like it was yesterday.

Happy Birthday Rylee! Mommy loves you so much! :)

I cannot believe it.....

June 1st.....wow! Where has 2009 gone? It seems like this pregnancy has flown by as well. I guess having a toddler to chase around makes the time fly. In 9 days, Landry Cate will be here. I am super excited but nervous at the same time. I was induced with Rylee and did not have a great labor/delivery experience. I hope this induction goes more smoothly and quickly. I keep hoping I will go into labor on my own before induction day but it doesn't look promising. I have a doctors appointment on Thursday and I would love to hear, "Oh, you are dilated to a 3 or a 4!" That would be just fabulous! ;) Will keep you posted.

Until next time.....xoxo
